Pain on Outer-Bottom Region of Foot?
For the past couple of days, I've have an aching pain on the bottom, outer region of my left foot. It is not close to the heel or the toes. It is almost exactly in the middle of this area.
It hurts more when I put pressure on it, when I walk, or when I try to stretch my foot. When I'm not doing any of these things, the pain dissipates.
I've been playing tennis more than usual, and the quick movements and change in direction may have something to do with it? Also, I have never had a naturally good arch in my feet, they are almost flat. My last job required me to wear tennis shoes, so I almost always had good support. My new job has me wearing flats and high heels a lot more, so that may have something to do with it too.
Given all of this information, what do you think it could be? How can I relieve the pain? I have looked at other forums and they suggest plantar fasciitis, but this pain is close to the heel, and mine definitely isn't. The other main suggestion seems to be peroneal tendonitis, but from the looks of it, this is described as a pain closer to the ankle region and not really taking place on the bottom of the foot.
Any help or opinion would be appreciated! Thanks in advance!
